09:21 AM ET 06.25 | Each day seems to bring more speculation about what the Cardinals will be willing to give up in exchange for the Eagles Kevin Kolb. ESPN's Sal Paolantonio recently said the Eagles want to get a player who contribute immediately, not a draft pick, in exchange for Kolb. I doubt if DRC is on the block. He's been inconsistent in Arizona, and there's no question coaches' patience will run out if Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie doesn't mature and put in the necessary study time. But great cover corners -- and DRC has the potential to be great -- are hard to find. And it's not as if the Cardinals are deep at the position.

I'd make this trade everytime. If you can get a franchise QB that will probably lead a team for 5+ years,you do it. It's a QB-centric league.

I love it. Probably toss in a low round draft pick somewhere to even it out.

I'm just not sold on Kolb. What has he done to make all these teams salivate at the sound of his name?

Nothing, he sucks! He's good as a back up... maybe. but as a starter heck no! This is why he is not going any where!

If I were an Eagles fan, I would be thinking the same thing. Something tells me that they would get the better end of this deal.

Kolb is still a better option than over-reaching for a QB in this past draft like so many teams did. Kolb is better than most of those chumps.

I would make the trade also IF you would get a franchise QB. sadly Kolb is not a franchise QB-adequate back-up yes, franchise... No! Talk about Kolb just shows the desperate need by some teams for a warm body at QB

With what's (and was, in the draft) available, I agree. However - as an avid watcher of the NFC East - I've watched Kolb run hot and cold...so I'd say the jury is still out on him, too.

I get a gut feeling that Orton would end up being a much better fit in Arizona, but who really knows? As another poster poin+ted out though, if I were Philly (or Denver, for that matter) I'd hold on to all of the QB's I had. DRC would tempt me in that Eagles secondary, though.

Hows this for a trade..Steelers deal Byron Leftwich to the Cards for the corner they need DRC (throw in Bryant McFadden (for free) back to the Cards. Cards get a good back-up QB better than Kolb, Steelers get the secondary help they need, and Arizona is set for the 2012 Andrew Luck sweepstakes

Who's Arizona's QB's? Max Something,Derek Anderson,and a water balloon launcher. I'd still rather play with Kolb than those guys.

At least the water balloon launcher would be a hit at training camp.

I'd start the water balloon launcher. It would be a fun way to race John Elway to Andrew Luck.

...and it gets hot in Arizona.

Really :) Not as hot as some fans if DRC left.

DRC is going to be great soon, Kolb, never

Man - I hope this doesn't happen.

Your secondary would be formidable.

Justifiably so. But if they do trade him, can they throw in the water balloon launcher? That would be fun to watch in Philly, too, in December, when Vick inevitably goes down for a game...or so.

No, you really want the water balloon launcher in a warm climate or on a dome team. Think wet T-shirt contests with cheerleaders.

Yeah,thats what they need in Philly,a "frozen" water balloon launcher in December.
